Civil War Era Sheared Lip Octagonal Inkwell - These small ink bottles were blown by the lip and the glass was snapped. This is a Civil War era "snap-top", aqua inkwell, measures 2 1/8 tall and 1 5/8" wide. The slightly jagged top is not a flaw, but the result of the manufacturing, snapped off, which makes the style appear to be broken around the lip. They are a common find in the mid-19th century and in Civil War campsites and typical of the 1860-1870 period. This one is in great condition.
